Who are we ?

Jean-Baptiste Bacquart graduated in history of art and archeology at the Sorbonne and the Ecole du Louvre. After heading  Sotheby’s London Tribal Art Department (1992-2000), he is now a dealer and adviser, working with museums and international collectors, advising them in their acquisitions and preserving works of art.

His book, "The Tribal Art of Black Africa" ​​(Thames and Hudson) is a great success and is now in its fourth edition.

Jean-Baptiste Bacquart participates in major international tribal art fairs in Brussels, Paris and the United States. Journalists regularly solicit his views and expertise on the tribal art market.

When Jean-Baptiste Bacquart established himself as an art dealer, Marie-Astrid Courtois assisted him. She then became fascinated by Tribal Art, and educated herself by his side.

She helps organising the major cultural events of the Galerie: Parcours des Mondes, Paris Tribal, Tefaf, and helps him produce catalogues. She greets customers and answers their requests. She also manages the day to day activity of the Gallery.
